Well it is official. Due to the budget crisis in the great city of Philadelphia - not to mention all of their inept politicians - the Free Library of Philadelphia will be closing all branches as of October 2nd.
You read that right. They don't have the budget for the library.
Hey, politicians, listen up and listen good.
You can take away our civil liberties and record all of our private phone calls. You can get away with mangling the Constitution and torturing foreigners on small, offshore Communist-nation islands. You can even tax us to bejeesus and not provide any kind of national health care in return.
But don't, for one short moment, think that you can get away with taking away our libraries.
This, of course, means war (or at the very least, peaceable demonstrations where protesters wear strongly-worded signs while sitting on the front steps of the Capitol building reading their un-returned library books).
